The Truth of You

Let the breath in
let it gently lap
the shores of your heart
calming the rapid beat
steadying its rhythm
allowing energy
to ebb and flow
meandering in and out
over and under
and all around

Let the light in
dappled through leaves
on a shimmering afternoon
kissing face and forehead
warming the very core of being
without burning
like a soothing cup of tea
a loving embrace

Let deep peace in
like a quiet snowfall
soft fog settling
leaving its imprint
of hush and mist
moisture refreshing your lips

Let quiet joy in
a radiant fire in the heart
spreading to every fiber
filling, flowing
within and all around

The knowing
the truth of you
